Clinical and animal model studies have demonstrated the neuroprotective and anti-inflammatory effects of 17beta-estradiol (E2) and progesterone (P) in different disease models of the central nervous system (CNS) including ischemic stroke. Inflammasomes are involved in the interleukin-1 beta (IL1beta) maturation, in particular, NLRP3, the adaptor protein apoptosis-associated speck-like protein containing a CARD (ASC) and the active caspase-1 (Casp1) form. Recently, we showed that administration of E2 or P selectively regulated these components after experimental ischemic stroke in rats...

BACKGROUND: The hormone adiponectin (ApN) exerts powerful anti-inflammatory effects on skeletal muscle and can reverse devastating myopathies, like Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), where inflammation exacerbates disease progression. The NLRP3 inflammasome plays a key role in the inflammation process, and its aberrant activation leads to several inflammatory or immune diseases. Here we investigated the expression of the NLRP inflammasome in skeletal muscle and its contribution to DMD...

Ample evidence shows that Parkinson's disease (PD) is more than simply a central nervous system (CNS) disorder: the immune system appears to participate in PD pathogenesis. Extracellular misfolded α-synuclein (α-syn) may trigger an inflammatory response in the brain. Abnormal immune responses are involved in the development of PD, but little is known about the relationship between the thymus malfunction and the pathogenesis of PD. The present study investigated 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP)-induced impairment in thymus and explored possible mechanisms involved in PD pathogenesis...

Nucleotide oligomerization domain (NOD)-like receptor protein-3 (NLRP3) inflammasome may intimately contribute to sustaining damage after traumatic brain injury (TBI). This study aims to examine whether specific modulation of NLPR3 inflammasome by MCC950, a novel selective NLRP3 inhibitor, confers protection after experimental TBI. Unilateral cortical impact injury was induced in young adult C57BL/6 mice. MCC950 (50 mg/kg, intraperitoneally) or saline was administration at 1 and 3 h post-TBI. Animals were tested for neurological function and then sacrificed at 24 or 72 h post-TBI...

Pulmonary fibrosis (PF) is characterized by inflammation and fibrosis of the interstitium and destruction of alveolar histoarchitecture ultimately leading to a fatal impairment of lung function. Different concepts describe either a dominant role of inflammatory pathways or a disturbed remodeling of resident cells of the lung parenchyma during fibrogenesis. Further, a combination of both the mechanisms has been postulated. The present review emphasizes the particular involvement of alveolar epithelial type I cells in all these processes, their contribution to innate immune/inflammatory functions and maintenance of proper alveolar barrier functions...

Over the past decade, the prevalence of obesity has increased, accompanied by a parallel increase in the prevalence of chronic kidney disease (CKD). Mounting evidence suggests that high body mass index (BMI) and obesity are important risk factors for CKD, but little is known about the mechanisms of obesity-related kidney disease (ORKD). The NLRP3 inflammasome is a polyprotein complex that plays a crucial role in the inflammatory process, and numerous recent studies suggest that the NLRP3 inflammasome is involved in ORKD development and may serve as a key modulator of ORKD...

The nod-like receptor protein 3 (NLRP3) inflammasome has a critical role in inflammation damage in ischemic injury, and the activation of the inflammasome is closely related to the interaction with thioredoxin interacting protein (TXNIP), which dissociates from the thioredoxin1 (Trx1)/TXNIP complex under oxidative stress. However, the negative regulator of NLRP3 inflammasome activation has not been fully investigated. Nuclear factor erythroid 2-related factor 2 (Nrf2) takes on a critical part in the antioxidant stress system, that controls the driven genes of antioxidant response element (ARE)...

Chromosome 17q21 contains a cluster of genes including ORMDL3 and GSDMB, which have been highly linked to asthma in genome-wide association studies. ORMDL3 is localized to the endoplasmic reticulum and regulates downstream pathways including sphingolipids, metalloproteases, remodeling genes, and chemokines. ORMDL3 inhibits serine palmitoyl-CoA transferase, the rate-limiting enzyme for sphingolipid biosynthesis. In addition, ORMDL3 activates the ATF6α branch of the unfolded protein response which regulates SERCA2b and IL-6, pathways of potential importance to asthma...

The NOD-like receptor pyrin domain 3 (NLRP3) inflammasome contains Nod-like receptors, a subclass of pattern recognition receptors, suggesting that this complex has a prominent role in host defenses. Various structurally diverse stimulators activate the NLRP3 inflammasome through different signaling pathways. We previously reported that ugonin U (UgU), a natural flavonoid isolated from Helminthostachys zeylanica (L) Hook, directly stimulates phospholipase C (PLC) and triggers superoxide release in human neutrophils...

An understanding of common human diversity in innate immune pathways should be beneficial in understanding autoimmune diseases, susceptibility to infection, and choices of anti-inflammatory treatment. Such understanding could also result in definition of currently unknown components of human inflammation pathways. A cellular genome-wide association studies (GWAS) platform, termed Hi-HOST (High-throughput human in vitro susceptibility testing), was developed to assay in vitro cellular phenotypes of infection in genotyped lymphoblastoid cells from genetically diverse human populations...

Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an organ-specific autoimmune disease characterized by T cell-mediated destruction of the insulin-producing pancreatic β cells. A combination of genetic and environmental factors eventually leads to the loss of functional β cell mass and hyperglycemia. Both innate and adaptive immunity are involved in the development of T1D. In this review, we have highlighted the most recent findings on the role of innate immunity, especially the pattern recognition receptors (PRRs), in disease development...
